The successful game 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution' gets a movie! CBS Films has secured film rights to Square Enix's cyberpunk videogame, with Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh attached to produce.
Game is set in 2027, when multinational corporations have grown beyond the control of national governments. Film will follow an ex-SWAT security specialist who must learn to embrace the high-tech prostheses that replace much of his body in order to unravel a global conspiracy that involves an attack on a biotechnology firm tied to developing human enhancements.
As is clear from the wild success of the game, Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal know how to exceed their audience's expectations by engineering incredible worlds. No one knows 'Human Revolution' like the team that created it, and we look forward to working with them from day one to make a film adaptation worthy of the 'Deus Ex' name.
